all things shine at Christmas

If you’ve been reading my blog since last year, you know we have an unusual Christmas tradition at our house – fancy nails. I took my acrylics off over the summer and was lamenting the loss of sparkly nails. I should not have worried. Thanks to the internet and my ever increasing skills in the art of google-fu I not only found an alternative, I found a salon that does it in my neighborhood. Check it out:

If you’re wondering how a polish can be so shiny, it can’t. It’s a process called Minx – basically it’s a thick sticker that is heat applied to the nail and peels off after a week or two. It does no damage to the nail below. Now *that’s* sparkly Christmas nails. If you’re local, I got mine done at Socialite Nails a beautiful little spa in Crescent Beach. (Ok so technically my OLD neighborhood. Details, details.) Any excuse to head for the water is fine by me. How are your Christmas plans coming? Do you sparkle yet?
